Something a person "goes on" when they exert all their possible power (usually confined to forum moderation) to control people's behaviour, or to force others to listen to ranty monologues.
That moderator just kicked me off the list because I disagreed with her, then posted a rant about me with the comments turned off! Crazy woman is on some sorta power-trip.

Someone, typically at work, who has higher powers over most people they work with. This higher power (usually a manager or someone's boss) tends to go to their head causing them to "Power trip" and abuse their rights as a manager/boss/owner. Such as picking on people or making their lives difficult, "Just because they can." is a person who is on a Power Trip.

one who thinks that they are better than everyone else. Then goes on a huge anger spree and is mean to people just because they think they can be.
